It's that time again. Passover! That time of year when we give up the sweet, sweet carbs we love and settle down to a nice, underwhelming book.
This year's entry is Sesame Street themed! And boy, was it.... fine.
Grover and Big Bird are visiting their friends in Israel, for some reason, because they don't know any Jews that live near them. For some reason.
But WHATEVER! It's Passover! They don't need to explain anything! Just shovel out a new book so that they can cover that small part of the population that wasn't already covered.
Also, I can't do Grover's voice. Like, at ALL.
But in all seriousness, Sesame Street only exists because of the wonderful people at PBS. PBS provides a wonderful service to families and children all over the country. It's important and should be protected. Please, Support PBS. And support other services like it.
Rachel & Sam Read a Story is about the fun of reading children's books new and old, and also about how little sense these books make when you read them 20 years later. We read the books aloud and make fun of them as we go. Enjoy!
